The Week in Plastic

Everyone who has got in touch, thank you, got loads of people submitting shots and tales to me and meeting lots of like minded small and large organisations trying to make a difference. So going to put each weeks correspondence together into a single blog, the week in plastic. Everyone who has signed up for emails, prints, postcards, the first go out this week. This first batch of shots comes from Sarah Clarke (follow her eon FB here – Checkered Photography), it’s a second dispatch from Morocco. Pretty grim looking situation at Anchor Point, one of the biggest problems with ‘developing’ world countries is a lack of education, lack of cash to have a choice in purchasing when it comes to products and a total lack of recycling and refuse disposal. It’s easy to blame the local populations for a total disregard for their environment but the problem runs a lot deeper. 10912517_10155088159200191_1743771478_o 10909512_10155088166415191_97208685_o 10927245_10155088167165191_111273723_o   Closer to home, this is all from a little walk along Watergate and Fistral just a week or so back, perhaps the most incredible bit of this is the mussels using fishing line as help to anchor, more coming from Cornwall later in the winter from a full dispatch, but in the meantime, here’s a reminder of why we need to take part in beach cleans. cornwall_plastic3 cornwal_plastic2 ornwall_plastic   This isn’t a recent shot but out of the archives of Jason Feast he posted last week, a shot of Alan Stokes in Indo, with a local family sitting amongst litter as if it’s just the way it is, which it sadly is. 10896845_10152507117126651_6706370472837192023_n Follow Jason he takes sick shots – WebFacebook Instagram   Finally legendary Norfolk based lensman Simon Buck sent me in a shot from the North Sea coast of Suffolk, got a full dispatch coming from the North Sea as well, but will keep the shots trickling through. Follow him here – https://www.facebook.com/pages/Simon-Buck-Photography/23912904155 10807924_10152877536713735_2127119287_n   Elsewhere a couple of people and organisations it is essential to follow – The Two Minute Beach Clean, we can all do this. Also just came across these guys, very inspirational stuff on a hyper local level – Rame Peninsula Beach Care
